We are excited to welcome noted scholar, liberal arts advocate and global leader for women’s education Meredith Woo as the 13th president of Sweet Briar College.

After a six-week transition period, Woo officially took office on May 15.

“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with a college so beloved. Educating women is like educating generations. Around the world, I have seen the demand for superior women’s education and the demand for the graduates of those institutions. Here at Sweet Briar, we have a real opportunity to recast the significance of single-sex higher education in today’s world, and I’m excited to be a part of that effort.”
